Linus is a popular character from the Charlie Brown comic strip and animated TV shows. He is Charlie Brown's best friend and is never seen without his blanket. Dressing up as Linus for Halloween is very simple, and once you add the blanket prop, everyone will know who you are. Get a friend to dress as Charlie Brown or Lucy for a cute group costume idea.
Things You'll Need
- Red, short sleeved T-shirt with horizontal black stripes
- Black shorts
- White socks
- White sneakers
- Hair gel
- Blue blanket
Put on the red T-shirt and black shorts. This is the outfit Linus is most often seen wearing. The red shirt has narrow black stripes going horizontally across it and the black shorts are casual cotton shorts.
Add white socks and white sneakers to the outfit to complete Linus's everyday look.
Ruffle your hair a little bit and comb some hair gel through it. Muss up the front a little bit. Linus's hair always looks a little bit like he just got out of bed, so give yourself some bedhead for a perfect Linus look.
Grab a blue blanket to serve as Linus's security blanket. Carry it with you the entire time you are dressed as Linus. It is an integral part of the costume.
Practice speaking with a slight lisp, which Linus is known to do in the Charlie Brown movies. Remember that Linus is highly intelligent and frequently waxes philosophical. He is also the Charlie Brown character who believes deeply in the Great Pumpkin, so you can mention the Great Pumpkin when you are dressed as Linus.
